a CD. Hear what a young reader has to say:
I like the first page because it says Asia and my
first topic was Asia at school. If you flick the pages three times
the page is no longer one page, it is three pages and the three pages
are fascinating. They are fascinating because I haven’t seen
a book like this before with three pages telling me all about storms.
I like the book because it is all about storms. There
is one page that opens up into a big tornado. It is amazing because
it is really big and I like the picture. And it’s got sea storms,
sand storms and firestorms and at the end it has got a story.

Worlds is a book that tells you about both the Arctic and the Antarctic.
It tells you about animals, their prey and predators, their disguises
and habitats. It informs you about the weather and temperature there.
You’ll find out about the inside of animals and facts you’ve
always wanted to know such as how a puffin carries so many fish in
its beak, who lead the first team of men to reach the North Pole,
how to build an igloo and how a macaroni penguin feeds it’s
The book will make you realise how cold and amazing
both Antarctica and the Arctic are. It includes polar bear facts,
penguin facts, and colossal squid facts and lots lots more. The illustrations
included in this amazing book are some of the most mind-boggling pictures
I have ever seen.
The book also includes facts about humans living
there too, which could be useful if you grow up to be a polar explorer.
This colossal book will help you understand the conditions in both
